Keegan Loesel is from Pennsbury Township, Pennsylvania -- a good ride out from Philadelphia. He declared at the tender age of three that he was going to play the uilleann pipes, & has worked with steadfast focus to bring that to fruition. At age 18 he now holds 17 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh titles, & in August 2017 he won the All-Ireland championship for uilleann pipes slow airs under 18. He has performed in North America from Toronto to California to the Jersey Shore, as well as in Dublin & in County Clare, & has shared the stage with the likes of Altan, the Chieftains, Mick Moloney, & The Teetotallers. In addition to playing the pipes - which he studies with Patrick Hutchinson - Keegan also sings, plays whistles, teaches, & composes... bringing a maturity beyond his years to the tradition.
Keegan's teaching [is] delightful and effective...." Marie - Hingham, MA
